A history-filled Hall house has been restored by Barry and Cynthia, who have gently unearthed all sorts of interesting architectural stuff. They’ve also collected some beautiful things: pictures, prints, antiques and vintage finds all rub along quite happily under their curation, so staying here is a treat for those with a good eye.
The kitchen will suit sociable cooks and you’ll find all the basics you need plus a nifty yellow spice cabinet and milk, bread, coffee etc in case you haven’t had time to shop. Walk to the village shop – they sell everything from lemons to lawnmowers – or pop into the local for decent pub grub. Bedrooms are all upstairs and are equally quirky, deeply comfortable and very, very quiet.
The mature and beautiful garden wraps itself around the house – you have your own bit, but you’re also welcome to wander the orchard and paddock. Walk or cycle straight onto the Levels from here.
